This was my third visit to the Potawatomi Zoo in just 17 months. My good friend Josh Sisk was the General Curator during this time. How could I resist visiting him and watching his curatorial creativity come to life at this beautiful 23 acre space in South Bend, Indiana? Josh is now headed to a new adventure in Los Angeles and the plan was conceived to visit him one last time combined with a fun reunion with the gang from Toledo and East Lansing. The lure of seeing three week old Amur leopard cubs was the icing on the cake. See you soon, Josh.POTAREUNION

serval and us copyWe took a mini-zoocation to South Bend, Indiana this week, to visit good friend and now General Curator at the Potawatomi Zoo, Josh Sisk.  What a fun and eye opening visit.  This 23 acre facility is beautiful – with a varied and interesting collection. The sight lines are wonderful and the habitats are large and very user friendly to the visitor. They have eight species of primates, four species of big cats, Sichuan takin, red panda, river otters, anteater and on and on. There was something new and fascinating around every corner. I was especially enamored with the Amur leopard and her three, six month old cubs. Thank you Josh for your generosity and time. We loved our visit and will be back for sure.POTAWATOMIZOO
